The Fungi world (95) : Penny Bun by Mark Billiau.

The Fungi world (95) : Penny Bun

The Penny Bun is a fungus whose habitat consists of forests dominated by pine and spruce.

Sometimes on occasion, its cap can reach 30cm in diameter, a stem height up to 25cm and a total weight of 3kg !

This edible fungus is considered as one of the safest wild mushrooms to pick for the kitchen table, as there are no poisonous species that closely resemble it. But it is also an important food source for animals such as the Red Squirrel. So I would strongly advice to leave it where it belongs and that’s the forest !

Dutch name : Eekhoorntjesbrood
German name : Fichtensteinpilz
Latin name : Boletus edulis

A big thanks to aline64 for the kindly nomination of this picture.

Absolutely beautiful Mark...

great shot! i can almost smell the rich fungus aroma of penny bun – what an interesting english name! it sounds like a cartoon character to me ; )! and you captured a very impressive specimen here – what a bizarre-looking stem! it's a little as though it's wearing marlene dietrich pants… lg, sabine.

Le pied !!! Encore un excellent regard, Mark :-)
Comme toujours une prise de vue adéquate.

Daniela Cognigni, 3.11.2010 at 9:34h

Ha un nome simpatico questo fungo e se piace molto agli animali specie agli scoiattoli si vede che è anche buonissimo,però ogni tanto qualcuno per un bel risotto lo possiamo prendere!!!
Ciao Mark,buona giornata.

Great shot, once again, perfect lightning and composition. This pic, all along with your explanations, makes it more valuable than the illustrations in my taxonomy books on mushrooms that I own :-)
Always a pleasure, kind regards, Massimo

Wie machst du es nur, dass jedes Bild auf geheimnisvolle Weise jeweils anders aussieht - nicht nur, weil du andere Pilzsorten fotografierst!

Angelika Ritter, 3.11.2010 at 18:11h

perfect shot.

I like this Fungi!
Beautiful presentation!
Wonderful photo!

Leo_nid, 3.11.2010 at 18:23h

Yes, a species well known and hunted for in areas around Moscow, with the reservation that all wild mushrooms are on the list of procsribed foods these days because oif their ability to acumulate noxious substances
A robust specimen here

CsomorLászló, 3.11.2010 at 18:49h

An excellent picture of this mushroom, well done!!! Greetings, vj

Adele Oliver, 3.11.2010 at 22:03h

This is about the only mushroom I would pick and eat without thinking twice..... except now after reading your advice. This one is a beauty, Mark ..... nicely lit, great sharp details, esp. the yellow veined side of the trunk!!
greetings, Adele

Hello Mark:
For me, fungi seem to have a strong connection to fairy tales, to gnomes and elves...
...and your photo somehow manages to introduce the viewer into this fairy tale word, the yellow colouring of this fungus underlines this impression.
I am waiting for the mythological creature to appear between the dark green plants of the background...
A Pro for details of the photo and for the imagination you conjured up.

Une superbe série de photos qui pourrait sans conteste
être utilisée pour l'illustration d'un ouvrage de mycologie.
